Want attention? Just mention Ubuntu…

5th November 2007

According to Google Analytics, visitor numbers for this blog hit their highest level one day last week. I suspect that I might have been down to a mention of two of my posts on Thanks guys. Feedburner activity has been strong too.

That brings me to another thought: the web seems a good place for Ubuntu users to find find solutions to problems that they might encounter. I certainly found recipes that resolved issues that I was having: scanner set up and using another hard drive to host my home directory, all very useful stuff. When I last played with Linux to the same extent that I am now doing, the web was still a resource but it wouldn’t have been as helpful as I found it recently. I suppose that there are people like me posting tips and tricks for computing on blogs and that makes them easier to find. That’s no bad thing and I hope that it continues. Saying that, I might still get my mits on an Ubuntu book yet…
